 The American Jazztone label existed between the years 1955 and 1957.  It was a short-lived outgrowth of the Concert Hall Society, a predominately classical mail order company. Jazz historian George T. Simon served as Jazztone's A&R director. Although portions of the Jazztone catalog were marketed through retail record stores, availability and distribution were often dicey. Jazztone recordings were reissued in Germany on that country's version of the Jazztone label, in France on Guilde du Jazz, and in the U.S. on Hall of Fame Records.  Jazztone issued material from various labels with a mix of reissues from other 
labels. Also, Jazztone issued a number of its own recordings.
